Salman Khan’s reality show ‘Bigg Boss 11‘, was the perfect stage for a common man to share the same house with a famous celebrity. As all previous seasons, ‘Bigg Boss 11’ contestants, whether commoners or controversial celebs, all naturally don the hat of a celebrity as soon as they are out of the show. The nest step is to be flooded with offers – with films, dance shows, judges or even television. ‘Big Boss 11’ contestants particularly gained a lot of fame, thanks to their cat fights, hair-raising abuses and cheap dating antiques.

Not one, but six such ‘Bigg Boss 11’ contestants have neither bagged a film film, nor are they on main stream television roles. Yet, these people are bucking up cash loads of money. Here’s how:


1. Hina Khan – music videos



30-year-old Hina Khan became a household name with Indian television’s longest running show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Not only is she a popular face in television, but she holds an enviable position in the industry.

Despite 6 months since ‘Bigg Boss 11’ ended, she’s without a film or TV project. Yet, she is cashing in on with brand endorsements and now, music videos. Her latest is Punjabi number ‘Bhasoodi’, which marked her debut in the entertainment industry.



2. Mehjabi Siddiqui – music videos



During her stay, Mehjabi was mostly sans make-up as considered a commoner. But this ‘Bigg Boss 11’ contestant has became a celebrity. Her recent pictures on social media will leave you completely awestruck. In fact, she’s totally transformed.

On the same day as Hina Khan‘s ‘Bhasoodi’ video was launched, the first music video of ‘Mehjabi was released too. She’s seen with her husband in her new avatar.



3. Priyank Sharma – web series



After handsome hunk Priyank Sharma won ‘Splitswilla ‘ and ‘Roadies’, he became a household name as a ‘Bigg Boss 11’ contestant. After his popular stint, it was assumed that he would automatically participate in a TV serial, but that was not to be.
